CDC Blocks Whistleblower William Thompson from Testifying in Vaccine Injury Case

magnifying glass on whistle blower

Dr. Frieden denied the request, arguing that “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS (Department of Health and Human Services).”

The director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Thomas Frieden, MD, reportedly has blocked a request by Morgan & Morgan law firm attorneys Bryan Smith and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to allow CDC senior vaccine safety scientist and whistleblower, William Thompson, PhD, to testify in a court case in Tennessee. The plaintiff in the case is a 16-year old boy, who alleges that his autism was caused by CDC recommended vaccines.1

Smith and Kennedy are providing legal counsel for the child in the case and sought to have Dr. Thompson testify to explain comments Thompson made that the CDC manipulated data in a series of published studies that found no link between vaccines and autism:

Dr. Thompson has publically stated to Congressman William Posey and others that he and his colleagues in the CDC Vaccine Safety Branch were ordered to commit scientific fraud, destroy evidence and manipulate data to conceal the link between autism and vaccines.1

According to a PR Newswire press release issued by the World Mercury Project, Dr. Frieden denied the request, arguing that “Dr. William Thompson’s deposition testimony would not substantially promote the objectives of CDC or HHS (Department of Health and Human Services).”1

However, Kennedy stated that he believes testimony by Dr. Thompson is critical to the case, noting that the CDC scientist is the co-author of four “key” CDC studies widely referenced in refuting scientific evidence that the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine, as well as vaccines containing thimerosal—a mercury-based preservative—causes brain and immune system dysfunction that doctors diagnose as autism.

This boy, and thousands of others, lost their cases in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program because the CDC and Justice Department submitted fraudulent science wrongly denying the vaccine-autism link.1

In August 2014, Dr. Thompson stated that a MMR vaccine safety study conducted by the CDC “demonstrated a causal link between vaccines and autism symptoms.”1 The CDC denies this finding. In February 2015, the U.S. government granted whistleblower immunity to Dr. Thompson,2 3 allowing him to testify before a Congressional committee without suffering any consequences from his employer. Dr. Thompson has yet to be subpoenaed by Congress.

According to Smith:

Frieden’s denial was a disappointment but not a surprise, since the inescapable implication of Dr. Thompson’s allegation is that the agency altered the science to undermine autism cases worth potentially $1 trillion in compensation ordered by Congress.1

Dr. Frieden’s refusal to allow Dr. Thompson to testify in the Tennessee civil court will be appealed to federal court.1

    I’m confused. I thought that if the court issued you a subpoena, that you had to go, and your boss had no say!!! Even if they were the CDC!! What is this B.S. that the CDC has power to deny evidence? What country are we living in?

    I would love a non-threatening person or agency to contact me … The CDC is no friend of mine, my wife & I both have extremely high chronic levels of Epstein bar & CM V virus panels due to CDC knowledge of tainted water systems on the west coast from chemical warfare production by their employees in 1984 – My wife became severely ill and nearly died – Now we have 6 out of 9 grandchildren with varied levels of autism … CDC denies (no previous family history) as usual, any vaccination connections – We are mortified, with the lack of human welfare for the profits of the marketing arm of the BIG Pharmaceutical companies … This has got to STOP – I need information documentation to fight these heartless, greedy people …

    3 words. Conflict Of Interest. A company facing prosecution should not be allowed to control the evidence in the court case against themselves! Hello!? Is anyone out there!? The judicial system is supposed to uphold checks and balances. Revoke this judges approval, stack additional plaintiff charges against the corporation for tampering with the witness(es) and intimidating the prosecution and the bench. Justice is supposed to be blind. This is a clear case of peeking. If the mechanism of the governmental judicial system fails We The People, we shall then turn to grand juries and force the hand of the government or clear the bench until such time as the elected and appointed representatives do their job in a correct, unbiased, and ethical manner. The court is supposed to have more integrity than to let the defense control the trial evidence. Hello! Houston, are you reading this transmission?

      I don’t want to burst your bubble but both parties are beholden to the corporations despite whatever they may claim. Neither major candidate will provide the solution you seek and the third party candidates have zero chance of winning. There is just too much money on the table and these vaccine makers (and their partner, the CDC) aren’t about to surrender it.

        Then Grand Juries of the citizens it is. Look into this concept and get well educated, because we do not require the government to uphold law and order. Law and order, alongside the government which the people appoint, and which is supposed to represent the people, is supposed to be the mechanism by which law and order is upheld. But at it’s core, the government is still We The People, and We are in charge of government, the government is not in charge of us. If the majority object, that is the voice the government must adopt, or they are no longer exercizing legitimate governance. There are additional checks and balances systems available to unappointed citizens. The power of the purse, the power to clear the bench, demand reconsideration of evidence, utilize grand juries and/or be tried by a jury of our peers, being just a few examples of that.

      The most important vote we ever cast, is cast daily with the power of the purse; aka our dollars spent. Get to know the ethics of the companies you support with normal spending. Help those around you make better ethically informed consumer decisions. Many people vainly appeal to government without taking personal responsibility. One of the most commonly disregarded responsibilities of the American citizens in this day and age, is the responsibility to boycott companies which do not promote; Freedom, Liberty, and Justice for all. Liberty is what saved us from tyranny over 200 years ago. Liberty is what will save us from emerging tyranny today. A friend of liberty is a friend of mine. An enemy of liberty is a sworn enemy for life.

Shouldn’t they and the government that is supposed to be policing them be held to the same standards as a “person” would be? I applaud Dr. Thompson and thank God for his bravery.

    I liked most of the comments, by the way. Donald Trump did admit that he doesn’t get those flu shots awhile back. Anyway, nobody, I damn mean, nobody, will inject any toxic filth into our healthy two young children. What is going on here in America is evil medical tyranny. If Donald Trump does make it alive to the White House early next year, I assume he will eventually stop this evil medical tyranny and “pull out the plug” to its taxpayers funding. This evil and corrupt and volatile presidential election isn’t over yet. Who knows who will be in the White House in a few months.

    How is it possible that a medical doctor within the CDC has the right to refuse the testimony of a called expert? Shouldn’t the judge on that case have the right to call Dr. Thompson?

    It would not surprise me if the case gets dismissed by the judge by saying the Act provides that such claims rest only in the federal magistrate court (under the VICP) and that that court doesn’t have jurisdiction. This has been what has shut down these cases for years. My daughter had Mercury Poisoning from her vaccines which was diagnosed by two different labs. She was supposed to be the test case for our state (CT at the time) when a group of lawyers organized to sue the Thimerosal manufacturers but the Homeland Secirity Act and the subsequent compromise over the issue shut that avenue down effectively cutting off any possibility of compensation for my daughter and many others. I don’t doubt that injustice will continue as long as the government wishes it to.

    This is criminal!!!! The CDC is fully aware of the results of vaccines and continues to push it under the carpet. How horrific that they give no value on human life and willingly are destroying young children and families across America. We need to continue to push for transparency and bring this before congress and not stop until Dr. Thompson testifies.

    We must stop the madness on the CDC’s projects using our children as guinea pigs.

      This is the key to the legal argument. Can NVIC please get a legal writer to expand on this argumentative point. The defense seems to be controlling the discovery process. I’m not a lawyer but this is supposed to be a simple and commonly understood legal concept that the defense is not in control of prosecutorial evidence.

    This affects everyones future and we need to continue to fight for right and wrong or they will keep shoving it down our throats. I wish they had discussed mandatory vaccinations positions at the debate. I hope everyone knows that Clinton is all for mandatory vaccines. That system is so corrupt. Money from Big Pharma goes into the foundation and in return a big push for everyone to be vaccinated, despite what will happen to each child and adult.

    Thank you for posting this information.

    I’ll look forward to finding out how the appeal process works out.

    Interesting case has gone to the jury in Michigan.

    A man was convicted for killing his girlfriend’s toddler (brain injury – shaken baby).

    He was granted a re trial and the medical evidence was brought in. The Prosecutor tried to block it! and then the local news wouldn’t talk about what that evidence was.

    If he is acquitted, it has been said that it may change Michigan Law when it comes to Shaken Baby as vaccine damage can create the same effect.

    CDC lies all the time. The are led by dishonorable people such as the proven liar Freiden. They used the phony zeica virus to extort a BILLION dollars from the fools in Congress led by Ryan who cave at every turn out of fear drummed up by the CDC.
    In November they will raise another straw dog to extort more money from the people of this country and the phony zeica scare will slowly disappear.
    They will likely use this extorted money to suppress further any resistance to vaccinations by ALL THINKING PEOPLE.
    We know for sure that Hillary Clinton will continue to support the CDC and their corrupt agenda. It is likely that Trump will also support these corrupt people BUT IT IS NOT CERTAIN Aso in my mind all we can do is to support Trump and hope he will look out for freedom to NOT vaccinate our children.

      Don’t forget about Jill Stein. She has also spoken out against some aspects of vaccine policy (mandatory vaccines, overloading schedules, etc).

      Don’t buy into the (corporate) mainstream narrative that she can’t win. If enough people vote for her, she absolutely could.

    It’s hard not to get emotionally involved in these topics, especially when you or a loved one has been injured by this process. This is nothing more than a chicken shit response. These assholes can get away with whatever they want due to their position of power. Obviously, this doesn’t promote their objectives, because it would completely change the way these cronies operate. Justice will prevail somehow. I hope in time, all of these very bad people burn in hell.

      Hi Angela
      The Zika scare was an attempt from Monsanto to avoid legal liability for water they poisoned in a poor area of brazil. I have read that there are vaccines that course sterility that they are giving to women in africa. They were trying to kill mosquito larvae by poisoning the water and poor pregnant women drank the water and damaged their babies. A group of Brazilian doctors have come out against this atrocity. You can read more about it on naturalnews.com. There are several articles about it on that site.
